Bystander Intervention Training with H.O.P.E. Works
Prevent sexual violence before it happens. Through this interactive training, participants will gain an understanding of intervention strategies that can be used in everyday situations. Participants will learn the importance of challenging social norms by stepping up, because without active bystanders, we cannot create real cultural change. H.O.P.E. Works is dedicated to ending all forms of sexual violence through healing, outreach, prevention, and empowerment. H.O.P.E.

Live Music: Father Figuer
Father Figuer is a post-rock outfit based in Burlington looking to bring you to that place between sleeping and waking, where things are as loud as they are quiet. “We are happy humans celebrating the ubiquity of sadness.” http://fatherfiguer.com/https://www.facebook.com/fatherfiguer/

Presentation: Booking 101 with Zack Dupont
Zack has been hitting the road extensively with The DuPont Brothers and other VT based acts for the past ten years without any help from booking agents or managers. This workshop is all about sharing information on how to successfully book tours and develop relationships with talent buyers and building in regional markets.
"The music world is more saturated than ever before. Booking agencies, labels and managers are rarely signing on new clients without any tour history or buzz around them. So in order to work towards building a team, it's essential to learn how to get yourself out there on your own first. I'm here to help independent musicians develop their ability to be self sufficient in producing successful tours from the ground up.”
